      If you need to get in a ride in less than 30 and you live or work in North Raleigh, this is a fun little park. The trail feels short but they packed a lot of fun into it. With lots of little dips and flow that traverses up and down the hillside next to a creek, you're sure to stay entertained. Riding these east to west, or doing the loops clockwise, makes the trail's segments downhill.

      Many of the trail's sections need to be connected by short segments of greenway. There are a lot of access points, but the best ones are the parking lot at the playground or the one up the road closer to the entrance of the park. For the loop segments, it's probably better to do them clockwise because it makes the more interesting parts of the trail flow downhill.

      As you can probably guess by the various apparati sticking out of the ground, this area used to be a working landfill. After reaching capacity, the landfill was capped and converted to a park for all to enjoy.
